Rosemary Cashew Butter “Cheese”

  The other day I was sent the most awesome gift. It was a cute box filled with Organic Nut Butters and once I opened this box my mouth was drooling. My head was also spinning with ideas on how to use all these delicious nut butters. Since Valentine's day was coming up, I immediately knew that I had to make a peanut butter pie for my husband. I have been wanting to make a peanut butter pie for quite some time but my family requested a chocolate cream pie for the last holiday and the holiday before that my daughter was visiting so no peanut butter pie as she is allergic to all nuts. So when my box of nut butters contained a jar of peanut butter I knew it was time to make a peanut butter pie as these organic nut butters were too good for my boy's sandwiches. I am sure Once Again Nut butter taste great on bread but I just wanted to use them in recipes. So when I went searching for a peanut butter pie recipe, I came across this recipe for Cashew Butter "cheese" on their website along with many others that I want to try. I just had to make this as it sounded so similar to my vegan cashew pate that uses raw cashews. I wanted to see how a creamy unsweeten cashew butter would work in a vegan cheese substitute.  This pate is one of my most pinned posts as it is an awesome vegan cheese substitute. I found out that cashew butter was a great replacement for my raw cashews as this Rosemary Cashew Butter "Cheese" was so creamy and flavorful. It satisfied my cheese craving and then some. Don't worry, my husband also got his peanut butter pie for Valentine's day. You can get that recipe and see how my pie looks at this link.

  So let's talk more about those wonderful nut butters that Once Again sent me. They sent me a box of four organic nut butters along with a cute raccoon plush. In this box, I discovered a jar of Creamy No-Stir peanut butter, a Creamy Roasted Almond Butter, a Creamy Cashew Butter, and a Sunflower Seed Butter. I love that these nut butters are unsweetened and salt-free so that all I taste is the wonderful taste of nuts. They are also Non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free! That also makes the butters awesome to use in recipes and smoothies. I think I need to make a chocolate peanut butter smoothie for breakfast. The almond butter would be great to use in my Easy No Bake Homemade Granola Bar recipe. It is a good thing Once Again sent me four jars of their delicious nut butters so there will be some for my boys to enjoy on their sandwiches as they sure do love their nut butter sandwiches.

Rosemary Cashew Butter “Cheese”

Serves 8

1 cup Once Again Organic Cashew Butter
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary

Place the cashew butter, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, water, garlic powder, onion powder and salt in a food processor.  Pulse until well combined.
Add the fresh herbs.  Pulse again to incorporate.
Line a small bowl or ramekin with plastic wrap.  Scoop the cashew butter cheese into the bowl/ramekin, packing down and smoothing the top.
Refrigerate until chilled and set.  Once chilled, cashew butter cheese can be turned out of the bowl/ramekin.  Remove the plastic wrap and slice to serve.

TIP: Nutritional yeast can be found in health food stores and many supermarkets.  It is loaded with B-vitamins and gives this spread its robust, cheesy flavor.

I've heard about making 'cheese' with nut butters and nutritional yeast but I've never tried it. Will have to give it a go now that you've road-tested the recipe for me!

What a clever idea! The most I ever was able to accomplish with a jar of (any) nut butter was a spoon and my mouth lol

I guess I need to branch out a little more and try new things! Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe!
